Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I never know what to say about me, so I asked some ex girlfriends.
One told me I was always extremely honest with her, always sincere
and up front whenever she asked me anything. Another said I was
adventurous, spontaneous and open-minded when it came to her off
the wall ideas. A number of friends, as well as my boss as the work
Xmas do, have mentioned that my sense of humour is well liked, so I
guess that's a plus.
In a woman, I want someone who is willing to be completely open and
honest. I want the type of relationship free from game-playing and
second guessing, where we keep no secrets and if one of us is not
happy then neither of us is happy.
I want a woman who has a sense of humour but can also be serious,
and who has her own interests and dreams and things she is
passionate about. I don't mind if we don't like all the same
things, that way we can both learn from each others tastes and
experience things we wouldn't have thought of before.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for a company that trades in scrap metal. I love my job.
Everybody seems to come to me whenever there's a problem, so it's
rewarding to solve them all and get things moving again. I get to
cover almost every role and am pretty much left to my own devices
so have a great amount of freedom.
I just started using weights again a couple of weeks ago, and have
just bought some running shoes so I can start running. I read, and
I'm writing a book(involving fitness/pyschology/body
language/cookery and all sorts). I've got a couple of business
ideas I'm looking to get off the ground, and I'm trying to find
time to teach myself guitar too.
Apart from that, I want to travel a little. I always wanted to see
Machu Picchu in Peru, and visit the far east.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Using colourful language at inappropriate times;
my job (at one time there was 3 people doing it, now just
giving advice and then not following it myself;
saying things then realising they sounded different in my
one or two things I'm probably not allowed to mention here, naughty
remembering miscellaneous crap(song lyrics, rules to games like
Warhammer that I've not played in 15+ years, whole sections of
film/TV dialog) in place of things I really should remember;
being slightly concerned at the number of people who seem to be
proud of their borderline alcohol dependency;
making jokes out of everything;
not being able to think of anything I'm really good at.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've never considered it. Probably the shaved head.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, and the 3 others in the
series. It also has the accolade of being the only (series of)
fiction book(s) that I can remember reading. I generally stick to
non-fiction as I like to learn.
Movies: The Lost Boys; The Princess Bride; Fast Times At Ridgemont
High; The Goonies; Legend; Innocent Blood; Highlander; The
Shawshank Redemption; Stand By Me; anything by Kevin Smith; and so
many others. I love horror films(I have all the Alien films and the
special edition of Predator) and just about anything from the 80's.
My guilty pleasure is really bad 50's scifi B-movies and creature
I'm also going to include TV here: The Big Bang Theory; Mock The
Week; QI; NCIS; Mythbusters; Monk; a cartoon from my childhood
called "The Mysterious Cities Of Gold"; Peep Show; Skins; Quantum
Music: I mostly tend to listen to older stuff. I like individual
songs rather than bands, and usually only have music in the
background as I'm doing other things. That said, I do like Cheap
Trick; Queen; Metallica; Iron Maiden; Guns N Roses; Muse; and
probably quite a few others too. That said my tastes are quite
varied and my playlist includes quite a diverse array (Taylor
Swift, Billy Ocean, The Temptations, Oingo Boingo, ELO, Rammstein,
Prince, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Huey Lewis, Cat Stevens).
Food: I'm trying to be much healthier right now so I'm mostly
avoiding all the desserts I used to love (ice cream and hot
chocolate fudge cake, cheesecake, gateaux, etc) in favour of
apples, pineapples, and/or kiwis (the fruit, not people from New
I'm told I make very good cookies, and that my cheesecake is
amazing. I'm not a fan of vegetables (I've tried eating broccoli, I
really have, but it's just terrible), and the only eggs I eat are
made of chocolate. Oh, and cheese makes everything taste better.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Orange and pineapple squash.
Yes, I know that's only 5. Clearly I'm a rebel and I'm sticking it
to the man. Take that the man.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
So many many things, for example:
How I can self improve?
How I can improve the world around me?
Why are BMW/Audi/Mercedes owners even allowed to drive?
Why does Dr Sam Beckett insist on having loud conversations with
Al, who only he can see, when there are other people close
What shape would a circle be if pi was exactly 3?
Why do women need so many pairs of shoes?
Seriously. What's with all the shoes? Are you all stockpiling in
case there's a shortage?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
doing the same thing I do every night Pinky, trying to take over
I'm probably at home, on the internet or reading a book, or
exercising, or cooking. Maybe with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Nothing really springs to mind, but that's probably because I
already know all of my secrets. Your secrets are far more
interesting to me. Like that thing you used to do that nobody else
knows about. Yes, that thing.
